Most gender reveals (at least the safe ones) involve cutting into cakes and colorful piñatas, but for Chrissy Teigen, casually announcing her baby's gender while on bed rest is just as effective.

The 34-year-old mom accidentally spilled the beans about her baby's sex on her Instagram Story. While giving fans an update about her pregnancy and the state of her placenta, she referred to the fetus as a "he," confirming that it's a boy.

She began, "I wanted to update you. My placenta sucks. It's always been kind of the bad part of my pregnancies with Luna. With Miles, it just stopped feeding him, it stopped taking care of him. I was stealing all his food because I was getting huge but he wasn't getting big at all. He had to come out early and Luna had to come out early. I was induced both times."

The model continued, "Anyways, it's super weird. Cause the baby is really, really healthy and he is big!"
 
After realizing what she did, the model covered her mouth in shock and said, "Oops!"
 
Shortly after the news slipped out, Teigen uploaded the same clip to her Instagram page and captioned it, "explaining what’s going on with my poopy placenta on my stories if you’re interested. Apologies for all the missed commitments in the next few weeks [blue heart emoji]." And on Twitter, after one fan shared a screenshot of the moment, Chrissy joked, "No fires and no one shot."
 
In the comments, hundreds of excited fans offered their congratulations and commented on her unique "gender reveal." One fan wrote, "Best gender reveal ever [laughing emoji]." 
 
The model and author shares her two children, Luna Simone and Miles Theodore Stephens, with singer John Legend. The pair announced that they were expecting their third child in August, when Legend released the music video for his new single, "Wild."
 
Congrats to the proud parents!
